Our new alien overlords are installing the mind probe software.

I don't really need one, as I got the chip in my Bill Gates vaccine :D

Something happening?
Marcel was having a tweak, more over a bit of a clear out.
and tidy up.
Hopefully that's it for now,

But for futures TP stutters the FB page will or at least should be upto date for any further disruptions

Yeah sorry about having to kill the app. I know it's a painful bandaid to pull off.
I should have done it a long time ago tbh. I'm sure anyone who misses it will understand why it has to go.
Besides, with my feelings towards how Tapatalk operate (suddenly changing our app that we pay for, to push ads, then refusing to disable them) makes me very uncomfortable about their plugin having access to our database

**UPDATE**

I'd like to announce that discussions have been successful and TP will be continuing as is, with someone new at the helm.
More details soon, but I want to reassure you all that TP is not going anywhere and will stay as it is...infact you might not even notice the switch :p


This is the new update in BLUE :cool:

We managed without the app in the past and can manage without it in the future. People tend to go for the easy, automated options, but in doing so can't avoid giving a level of control, access and power to Companies that cannot be trusted. Facebook, Amazon, Royal Mail and Deliveroo may be other examples of what can happen when people are too trusting.

I was looking through the thread to see if anyone else was having a problem with the app
:rolleyes::D

Great news regarding the forum staying put(y)

I hope you will staying around Marcel.
what you need now is to chill out and relax. Maybe to some music music that can produce amazing sound.
Just an idea but maybe you should check out any hi-fi’s for sale on TP :naughty:
:LOL:

Hope all goes well for yourself, the site, admin and members going forward :)

And the site works perfectly well on a mobile anyway, so there's no actual need for an app

Realistically the only reason I used the app was it was a quick way to get to the forum from my phones desktop. I've no doubt I can just create a shortcut to the page from chrome :)

When I read the first post it was very sad that the forum might close down.

I joined this forum 14 years ago, and learned so much, and built up some great photography kit, mostly purchased from the fantastic people on these forums.

I'd stepped away for photography for a good few years due to life, family etc, and sadly my partner lost her battle with cancer 11 months ago aged 35, and my step daughter went to live with her grandmother, so I find myself on my own again, with nothing but time.

Sold all my photography kit last year which I deeply regret, so trying to reconnect with these forums, and see if I can reignite the passion for photography I once had.

Was good to read the forum is staying open and thanks again to owner, mods etc for all their great work.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I think photography can be different things to different people, but it is definitely something that can get you out and about and away from everyday issues. Hoping it can help you find some solace.

Have they done it yet? If so, can you ask them what film I put in my Yashica TLR the other month, please, as I can't bloody remember?

Anyway, glad to see TP is staying, I was really depressed when I read the announcement the other week. Thanks to Marcel for all his hard work over the years too, this forum is a credit to him and the backroom staff who help keep it all going.

Sorry to hear that, Scott. Photography can be good therapy, though, so great you're getting back into it. (y)

Sorry to hear of your loss and current isolation, it's easy to say "keep positive" but looking to reconnect with things you enjoy may help ... wish you 'all the best'.

Glad to hear that the Forum will be continuing albeit with a New Captain at the Helm. Thank you once again Marcel for all the time and effort you have given to this Forum since it’s inception, thanks also to all the Staff Members and Moderators that help keep the peace. Looking forward to continuing my Photography journey with you all.

Wow, I’ve not been on for a while for one reason or another, and only today tried to log in to the app after upgrading my phone, now I know why I was unsuccessful.

So, just want to say thank you to Marcel for all the hard work and dedication you have put in over the years and thank you to the admin, moderators etc and to who ever is taking over. I look forward to using TP more than I have been and has been a wealth of advice and confidence booster in the past.
